Are you thinking about moving from Germany to the Netherlands? The country certainly has a lot of amazing things to offer and considering you are still in the EU, you don’t even need to jump through a lot of bureaucratic hoops.
German citizens only need their ID to enter and live in the Netherlands, and can also enjoy the perk of 0 taxes when it comes to shipping their belongings, even vehicles. If you need a professional team to help you move internationally to the Netherlands, we can help!
Why You Should Consider Shipping Your Stuff
The Netherlands’ economy certainly offers a lot of employment opportunities for German citizens, but there is one hiccup they can come across when it comes to finding accommodation.
The real estate market is highly competitive, and the prices often run high as well. The average rent in the country can be as high as roughly $1000, while average rent in Germany is around $800 in comparison. You can find cheaper options too, but you need to be on the lookout for these listings.
Additionally, apartments in the Netherlands are commonly rented without furniture. If you take this into account with the high rent cost, it makes a lot more sense financially to ship your personal belongings there, as opposed to shopping for new ones.
How Do You Ship Personal Items and Vehicles to the Netherlands?
When shipping internationally, your best option is to hire a professional team of international movers that can help you. Moving companies offer a variety of different services to choose from, and you can opt for what you need, and what you can afford.
Here are two main benefits of working with a moving company:
1. It’s One Less Thing You Have to Do
The most obvious perk here is simply the fact that you do not have to worry about how to ship your belongings, or even going through the Dutch customs. The moving company can:
- Pack everything up
- Arrange transfers between multiple vehicles if needed
- Help you gather any necessary documents for Dutch customs clearance
2. It’s Safer
For one thing, a professional moving company has the right combination of professional tools and experience to handle your positions and secure them for transfer. Not only that, but your cargo will also be protected by insurance, meaning that if something happens to them mid-transport, you are covered.
